South Devon trip : Atlantic highway to Tintagel


Atlantic highway is one of the best scenic route in UK. As it follows the line of the coast between Barnstaple to Newquay in North Devon/Cornwall, features hills and costal scenery. I purposely proposed this route to my husband because I knew he'd like it there (and love the name!).


To the north is The Midlands (Birmingham)  we were going to Plymouth (for Brixham, our holiday park) via Atlantic highway..melencong sikitlah..hence we made it as 5 hours journey fuh! But again, for what it's worth. We passed through Bristol to Tiverton, to Barnstaple which the Atlantic highway begins in Cornwall. I know to many places mentioned here..but hey! Saya suka bermain dengan nama tempat. We even passed by a town named Westward Ho! - the only place name contains with exclaimation mark =)

The Atlantic highway is between Barnstaple to Newquay, but we only made it half until Tintagel that famous known as King Arthur's village, dah berangan ke sana but little did we know it only opens in weekend for this season.







River Taw at Barnstaple (a key port centuries ago..still nampaklah sikit2) and all the while the twinkling from the sea was on our right. Excited, tak sabar! Haha sebenarnya jalan dia pusing2 macam Bukit Putus @_@ Berkat kesabaran mengharungi jalan ini, thanks to spectacular views ; countryside, woods, farmland, and we reached a bay holiday park with masyAllah superb scenery. We didn't plan at all to came here, tiba-tiba tersampai...I don't know maybe rezeki nak bagi tengok ni..

 this is how a holiday homes look like..very cosy, and pricey too!

 Apalah perasaan bangun pagi dan melihat bay cantik ni..bestnya. Luckily those two homes masa tu  unoccupied, we had our lovely time there appreciating the scenery =)







So that was Tintagel, we continued the journey to Brixham, our holiday park. It was a chalet (erk, more like a terrace house) I want to make full review on this park, in case someone is searching for its info. Despite many bad comments  / reviews I found on this park. But honestly (as luck may have it?) we actually had a lovely stay at the park. With full kitchenette we got, sampai2 saja terus masak..spagetti lagi =)



Next entry..


A holiday park with bay view! Nun dihujung sana. Surprised we got it too!
